Day #558:Too many people are like wheelbarrows, trailers, or canoes

My decision is maybe – and that’s final.” Is this you? Being decisive is essential for a successful life. If you deny yourself commitment, what will you do with your life? Every accomplishment, great or small, starts with a decision.

Too many people are like wheelbarrows, trailers, or canoes. They need to be pushed, pulled or paddled. You’re either moving other people to decisions or they’re moving you. Decide to do something now to make your life better. The choice is yours.

The moment you definitely commit yourself, providence moves too. All sorts of things happen to help you that never would have otherwise occurred. Kenneth Blanchard observed, “There is a difference between interests and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you only do it when it is convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” Lack of decisiveness has caused more failures than lack of intelligence or ability.

Maurice Witzer said, “You seldom get what you go after unless you know in advance what you want.” Indecision often gives an advantage to the other person because they did their thinking beforehand. Don’t leave a decision for tomorrow that needs to be made today. Today, decide on your dream.
